Opening for District 1 Citizen Member on Wright County Board of Adjustment

A Message from Wright County Planning and Zoning Administrator Sean Riley

There is an opening for a citizen member on the Wright County Board of Adjustment.  This opening is for a member that resides in District 1, which is represented by Commissioner Christine Husom. District 1 includes the Cities of Annandale, Buffalo and South Haven and the Townships of Albion, Buffalo, Chatham, Corinna and Southside.

The Board of Adjustment is a five-member board appointed by the Wright County Board of Commissioners. The most common and best-known function of the Board of Adjustment is the consideration of requests for variances. However, it also acts upon questions regarding the administration of the Zoning Ordinance, including the interpretation of zoning maps, interpretation of Flood Plain boundaries, and any appeals concerning the decisions and interpretations made by the Wright County Zoning Administrator. The board also may review lots of record that don't meet current zoning standards, and may require these lots to be joined, combined or otherwise modified to conform more closely to current standards.

The Board of Adjustment meetings are typically once or twice a month at 8:30 a.m. on Friday mornings in the County Board Room at the Wright County Government Center. Most months have one meeting a month with the remaining ones having two a month. Meetings typically last between two and three hours with a per diem of $60 a meeting.  

If interested, you can contact Commissioner Husom directly at Christine.Husom@co.wright.mn.us or call (763) 682-7697. For specific requirements and obligation questions you can contact Sean Riley, Wright County Planning and Zoning Administrator, at Sean.Riley@co.wright.mn.us or call (763) 682-7330.
